As you know I don't know these people on a personal level, yet Maddie can send a joyful greeting to Daniel on his birthday and say how glad she is that he is in the family says a lot about their relationship. And the greeting that she sent her brother, well that also say a lot............plain, simple, to the point and certainly not joyful.

The press told on 13th January 2010, that Sofia was Carl Philip's new girlfriend.

The press wrote about them the whole spring and told that they had started dating in the summer 2009.

Victoria's and Daniel's wedding was on 19th June 2010.

The court confirmed in July that Sofia was Carl Philip's girlfriend. But they had never confirmed that Daniel was Victoria's boyfriend, neither with Jonas and Emma

Exactly so - which is why this relationship has felt like it has been going on forever. There has been a continual expectation of an engagement 'any time now' precisely because the relationship has been acknowledged. It's possible they thought Carl Philip would tire of her, or figure her out, given time. Didn't happen.

I think (from what I have seen) that she is someone whose 'on' switch triggers when she is the center of attention. Without focus on her, she droops. This is not in itself a bad thing, btw - at least imo. Such is an attribute that comes in handy for countless careers and activities - but can be tiring if there is no 'off' switch and holds for even when in private company.

I find this reference to her 'past' interesting. Her 'past' imo is recent enough to be her 'present' really.

Anyway, it is what it is.

Fact is, such pairings have been going on forever, certainly in aristocratic circles, and it's not been unheard of amongst royalty. Consider the 'Gaity Girls' that married into English aristocracy in the 1890's. I know of a few Las Vegas showgirls who married exceedingly well - and were far from 'dumbos'. In fact, the one common quality amongst those I know is the presence of hearts on fire - really loving souls. Terrific hostesses btw.

Following the move from the engagement thread, the mods would like to remind everyone to try and stay as factually-based as possible. Posts which read too deeply into things like body language/etc will be removed under the speculation rule. Also, repetitive postings will also be removed at moderator discretion.

I think when you grow up in that type of a bubble, and it maybe to an extent, as that type of family in that position you grow up maybe closer than most, I'm not willing to read much into picture as it is but I think their childhood pictures or video made them all seem very close, in particular as a family. And now when one becomes older, branches out to form their own families there are going to maybe be issues but I think public side of people can be seen as however the public wants it look even if it's not actually the truth.

I think it's great when siblings are close regardless, but maybe when you begin to marry your relationships with your siblings or your parents, they change from being immediately close to being I guess moderately close and even that type of distance can be seen as, "they have issues," but then again not all families are perfect. Despite their royal status these are still people--Victoria, Daniel, Carl Philip, Sofia, Madeleine, Chris, all their children and then the King and Queen. Whatever you don't see, their private selves--we all want privacy--I think one should realize how much harder it might be to be in the public but also try to be taken seriously as a real person and not always a title.

I agree with what you say. Nicely stated.
